Experts analyzed the poses of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, in which they starred for the cover of Time magazine, and saw in them the power of Meghan Markle over her husband. The corresponding material is published by the Daily Mail.
It is noted that the couple entered the top 100 most influential people in the world in 2021. In a photo dedicated to this event, Prince Harry and his wife, former actress Meghan Markle, pose on the terrace of their estate. The prince is depicted in a black shirt and trousers, standing behind his wife and leaning on her shoulder. Markle, in turn, starred in a similar white outfit, joining her hands in front of her.
Leading communications coach Robin Kermode, who works with high-ranking political and business leaders, said that the Duchess of Sussex’s wide-open eyes and closed posture speak of her shyness. At the same time, the specialist expressed dissatisfaction with the chosen frame: in his opinion, it does not reflect the harmony in the relationship of the couple since Harry is captured behind his wife’s back.
At the same time, Kermode gave a positive assessment to the second image, where the couple is captured holding hands in the garden. “This picture is more natural, and Harry’s smile here is very sincere,” he noted.
In the third frame, the Dukes of Sussex are depicted in images of dark green. Harry stands with his hand in his pocket, and Markle again took off in a closed pose, but with her legs wide apart.
Body language expert Darren Stanton stressed that in this way, the Duchess showed her strength. “She spread her legs wide — this is a classic gesture of power used by the world’s leading politicians, including [former U.S. President Donald] Trump, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, [French President Emmanuel] Macron and [Canadian Prime Minister Justin] Trudeau. The idea is that the more space we occupy, the more important we become,” he explained.
In addition, according to Stanton, Prince Harry’s poses in each picture reflect his desire to support his wife. “In general, I think the photos reflect that the couple is striving to further develop their brand, especially in America. At the same time, the body language shows that in their relationship, the power is in the hands of Megan,” the expert concluded.
